    Thanks for posting this, (I don't know how). Was looking to see if Alissa was listed here but nothing was coming up with her name. This is local for me, (as I grew up in one place mentioned and went to school in the other mentioned), although I do not know the victims or the alleged killer. Everyone here has been praying for Alissa's family.

    What horrific accounts for both cases...the second victim is lucky to be alive...

    very glad he is off the street or he would most likely kill/injure someone again...

    It is pretty local to me as well. I remember it was pretty shocking when Alissa's body was found because it's a relatively safe area. I'd really love to know more details. Had they been looking into O'Dell for Alissa's murder or did it just come up when he was questioned about the second attack? I also don't really believe his story about what happened the night he killed Alissa. I wonder if he was stalking her perhaps.

    WTH?!! That is crazy!

    The girl must have been extremely drunk and passed out not to feel much. She just thought it was cramps??!! I hope she is okay now, but this is one very strange story. The guy has got to have some mental issues going on.

    Was the first girl drinking with him too?

    I think this guy was a serial killer in the making.

    The second girl is going to be okay, she is out of the hospital. The friends of the two girls held a candlelight vigil last night and the second girl showed up. She didn't want to be identified. I have tried to find a link for this but couldn't-- it was on the local news last night. I would like to know how much she had to drink that night, too. I also wondered if he maybe drugged her but there's nothing mentioned about that.

    I do not believe the first girl, Alyssa, was drinking with him. She was fishing in a conservation area at night which she was known to do. I think that's all that is known as a fact (other than she was murdered with a hatchet). I definitely don't believe his story about what happened that night.

    Well, that night, Killer Boy brought over beer and tequila, which, if memory serves (although it frequently doesn't - too much beer and tequila in my past), will pretty well sedate you. But the painlessness of the initial episode makes me think, "dosed with oxycodone."

    Wow.

    It literally felt like I was watching a scary movie as I read that.

    Almost as if he sought these girls out as potential girlfriends & when it was obvious it wasn't gonna go there this was his reaction to their "rejection".

    To do these things to people & then to just go home.. Fall asleep.. Rationalize it the next day...

    His eyes are dead & thankfully the 2nd girl survived & stopped an obvious serial killer before we lost any more beautiful young ladies with their whole lives ahead of them.

    I hope that the survivor can get the mental help that she's so gonna need, that any of us would need.

    I keep wondering why. This guy was young, only 22. And he had to work hard to get himself to Eagle scout as a kid. He earned community respect. No apparent previous criminal history. And he just goes out and kills a woman, a friend and goes home and goes to sleep. Then he does it again?

    I just don't get it. Yeah I know about psychopaths, but wouldn't someone have noticed something before? Would a psychopath have done the work to get himself to Eagle scout? I just don't get it.

    I don't believe his story either. You don't just go for a walk along this river. It is dirty, nasty, muddy, the banks are steep and trees line it. It floods virtually every spring and last year was no exception. It actually ran high all summer. Looks like I may have gone to school with some of his family.

    From the very beginning the police were extremely tight lipped. They gave no info on how Alissa died, nothing except they were sure it was murder. They never mentioned any suspects just kept asking for any info. Since he was a co-worker I am sure he was talked to in the beginning. I don't remember any interviews with anyone from where she worked. Maybe they did suspect from the beginning and asked everyone they talked to to keep quiet.

    Looks like I may have gone to school with some of his family although they were younger than me by 3-4 years. This area is not immune to crime but murder is pretty rare here. We had a murder here in 1977 and in that case I did know the murderer and the victim both.

    Man pleads guilty in Shippert slaying, disemboweling 2nd woman

    PLATTE CITY, Mo. —A Platte City man accused of killing a woman and disemboweling another woman in 2011 has pleaded guilty in the case.

    Platte County Prosecutor Eric Zahnd said that Quintin P. O’Dell, 23, avoided a possible death sentence after admitting Thursday in court that he murdered Alissa Shippert on the banks of the Platte River and assaulted another woman seven months later in Ferrelview.

    O'Dell was sentenced to life in prison.

    “Make no mistake, I would have no hesitation in asking a jury to impose the death penalty in this case. However, the victims’ families wanted to end this case without enduring the additional pain of a death penalty trial and prolonged appeals. Given their completely understandable wishes, this is an appropriate resolution,” Zahnd said in a news release.
